Skimboard Trick - Varial Filp 180

Postby Lonny » Sat Jul 19, 2008 8:38 pm

Here it is guys. Presented for submission for your approval. My first skimmy Varial flip 180 that I landed, rode away and caught on film. :shock: :D

Here it is in SlowMo

Thanks to Kat, our genius webmaster who did the animation and flash plug in, and Harrison Diamond for standing in muck to shoot it.

That is totally cool, wish the wind would back off here a little so I could try it. 25-30 today too much for me to skim!!

:shock: Thanks a lot. I have to say that I was totally stoked to land that trick. Just the fact that you want the wind to back off to try it is pretty cool. Glad that it inspired you :!: Heck, we are thinking about driving 2.5 hours today to find 15. :) I have a few more that I will be posting in the next few days.

Thats 25-30 knots btw not mph!! Winter over here is either flat calm or blowing a gusty gale it seems this year. Still I'm not complaining. Its all good stuff.
